"Rubberneck."
Tribeca Films has picked up North American rights for two films by Alex Karpovsky, "Rubberneck" and "Red Flag." Both films Karpovsky wrote and starred in, and center on a young man's awkward navigation of relationships.

"Rubberneck" (read our TOH! review here) premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, and "Red Flag" had its debut at this summer's Los Angeles Film Festival.

Tribeca has theatrical and VOD releases planned for February, 2013.

Karpovsky is one of the many artists who received the Lena Dunham boost following the success of "Tiny Furniture" in 2010. Karpovsky had a supporting role in that film, and went on to get parts in Mike Birbiglia's "Sleepwalk With Me," as well as Dunham's Emmy-nominated HBO comedy "Girls." In the pipeline for Karpovsky is the Coen brothers' "Inside Llewyn Davis," which may pop up at Cannes 2013, and Daniel Schlecter's "Supporting Characters," which Tribeca is releasing in January.
